  • In Mindil Beach i saw the best sunset of my life. I put i pic and it is real. I didn't believe so i decide to come back the day after and it was better. Crazy!
  • Nice beach in Darwin, water is shallow so you have to walk out a couple of meters. Lifeguards so it's safe. Not australias nicest but ok place for a quick dip.
  • The place to go for some of the world's best sunsets. Best enjoyed with Barramundi fish & chips during the sunset market. I'd come to Darwin just for this experience again.
  • Best place for watching sunset. Great night market during the dry season.
  • wonderful markets
